The pool at All Seasons Leisure Centre
wanting to make waves this summer can take advantage of fantastic new offers at
Chorley’s leisure centres.
Chorley Council-owned pools at All Seasons Leisure Centre and Brinscall Baths
will be offering brand new deals to replace free swimming for children and
older people, which ends on July 31.
Peter Goldsworthy, Leader of Chorley Council, said: “Although free swimming was
popular in Chorley, all the evidence suggests it had been taken up by people
who were already swimming and it wasn’t attracting lots of people to take up
encourage these people to continue swimming and keeping themselves fit and
healthy our leisure centres will offer some fantastic new deals.
5s will still be able to swim for free and people aged 60+ will be able to swim
for just £1 per session through the Passport to Leisure scheme.”
new offers put together by Active Nation, who run the centres on behalf of
Chorley Council, include:
membership for the gym and unlimited swimming for £15 per month
membership (people aged 60+) unlimited swimming for £9.99 per month
membership (two adults and up to three children) – unlimited gym, classes,
swimming and half price sports camps during school holidays for £54 per month
Ratcliffe, Active Nation’s Commercial Manager at Chorley, said: “The new deals
offer great value for money and mean people can enjoy the state of the art
facilities to keep fit.
deals will also encourage people to use the gym or take part in exercise
classes as well as going for a swim
also introducing swimming lesson membership from just £15.99 per month.”
Free swimming, which was launched nationally in 2009 and funded
by the Government, was aimed at getting more people taking part in exercise.
The announcement to remove the funding formed part of the
government’s future spending plans, which aim to reduce the national deficit.
“Not only have we got new deals at our leisure centres we’ll
still be providing free and low cost activities for children and people aged
50+ through our Get Up and Go and Active Generation schemes,” said Councillor Goldsworthy.
